Central Coast Performer Wraps Up Tour on Home Turf

Posted: 4 Jun 2021
Opera Australia are coming to the Central Coast this winter with the fiery Spanish tale of Carmen. Not only is the choir formed of local students from the Conservatorium but local opera singer, Danita Weatherstone will be performing her last show of the tour here at home.

Danita is an award-winning soprano who has toured with Opera Australia since 2017 and has been singing since she was 10 years old. This the second time Danita will appear at The Art House with Opera Australia after her role in the 2018 performance of Madame Butterfly. Speaking on returning to home turf, she said

“Three years ago, performing the role of Butterfly on home turf was the highlight of the national tour for me. It was the first venue to sell out and was filled with so many friends and family.... the best crowd I have ever sung for. So I’m very much looking forward to singing at The Art House again. I have lived my whole life in the Central Coast and am very proud to still call it my home. 

Doing my final show for the tour on home ground will be even more special this time around as I will be seven and a half months pregnant!”

Set in Seville in Franco’s socially conservative 1960’s Spain, the opera follows the ill-fated relationship of a free-spirited gypsy woman, Carmen, and the passionate and ultimately destructive police corporal-turned-rebel Don Jose.

Carmen really has it all, some of opera’s greatest music and most famous tunes, Spanish flair, passion, tragedy and a truly enigmatic character in Carmen, but above all it’s about love.” said Director Matthew Barclay.

Don’t miss this very special opportunity to see our local talent onstage in renowned national company.
